Sze Tsung Leong: Horizons

Text by Joshua Chuang, Charlotte Cotton, Duncan Forbes, Pico Iyer, Sze Tsung Leong.

"Quiraing 1, Isle of Skye" (2007) is reproduced from <I>Sze Tsung Leong: Horizons</I>.In his new Horizons series, the British-American artist Sze Tsung Leong (born 1970) combines wide-angle photographs of landscapes from throughout the world that exhibit fundamental formal similarities and rhythms by connecting them with a common horizon line. Unconventional juxtapositions allow the viewer to transcend distances and boundaries and to leap from the glacial lake of Jökulsárlón in Iceland to the tropical Indian Ocean; from the Israeli separation barrier to the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River; from the suburbs of California to the plains of Kenya. More than ten years in the making, Horizons gives an unfurled view of the surface of the globe. Thought-provoking and witty, poignant and playful, the series is above all a cumulative reminder of the complex and perpetually transforming relations between regions, cultures and nations that constitute the planet we live on.

"Quiraing 1, Isle of Skye" (2007) is reproduced from Sze Tsung Leong: Horizons.

Sze Tsung Leong: Horizons

"A horizon, in its simplest manifestation, is a line separating ground from sky. This gesture forms the basis by which the earth’s surface is comprehended from an individual’s point of view. When drawn on a two-dimensional surface, it has been understood, since the development of linear perspective six centuries or so ago, to create the reference plane upon which we can see the illusion of three-dimensional objects sitting in relationship to each other in a unified space. On a perceptual level, the horizon represents the farthest we can see. On a cognitive level, the horizon marks the limit of what we know, a line that weaves vision and knowledge together. It is, according to Webster’s, 'the fullest range or widest limit of perception, interest, appreciation, knowledge, or experience.'" Text excerpt and featured image, "Irozaki, Nishi-Izu, Shizuoka" (2008) are reproduced from Hatje Cantz's poetic new release, Sze Tsung Leong: Horizons. continue to blog
